tv   Hannity  FOX News  March 25, 2010 9:00pm-10:00pm EDT

9:00 pm
but now this bill goes on to the president's desk in the health care reform voting is now over. that's our special coverage tonight. hannity begins right now. >> sean: this is a fox news alert. the house of representatives just passed the final changes to the health care reconciliation bill. this rehashed version of the bill senate changes included will be sent to the president for his signature. two representatives who voted moments ago will be joining me shortly that's not the only news happening while the reconciliation bill may have temporarily distracted democrats today they spent most of their time creating a media circus over the threat that some members received in the wake of sunday's vote. they've publicized some of the threatening phone messages and faxes received. we are not going to play any of those messages, because we think it is inappropriate to publicize them. the democrats do not share our
9:01 pm
sense of propriety. james clyburn led the pack saying all of this reminds him of the violence that took place during the civil rights era. >> what i saw on saturday, especially, out in the streets and what i heard, very reminiscent of that history. >> sean: new york congressman weiner chimed in and he knew who to blame for these disturbing incidents. >> i think my friends in the republican party have to say to supporters is one thing to propose a piece of legislation an entirely different thing to engage in homophobia and anti-semitism and racism. >> sean: republicans did condemn the violence even though they had choice words for the democrats. here's what eric cantor had to say earlier today. >> there are no leaders in this building, no rank and file members in this building that condone violence, period.
9:02 pm
i've received threats since i assumed elected office, not only because of my position, but also because i'm jewish. i've never blamed anyone in this body for that, period. it is recollection leto use these incidents as media vehicles for political gain. to use such threats as political weapons is reprehensible. enough is enough, it has to stop! >> sean: joining me with reaction, two people who spent all day on capitol hill, congresswoman bachmann and tom price welcome back to the program. congresswoman let me begin with you and your reaction to what eric cantor said, because i an with him. >> i agree with him 100%. i was there this weekend there were over 30% -- over 30,000
9:03 pm
americans that made their way to express their displeasure with the health care buy i found an orderly crowd who even picked up their own trash after themselves. the media wanted you to think these were toothless hillbillies that came out i met surgeons, ceos, business owners, pharmacists, judges, people from all walks of life and professionals. i did not see what has described today by the democrats. i agree with eric cantor. i think it is reprehensible to create this dust-up for political gain. >> sean: we all agree congresswoman that any threat against any elected official is a threat against we the people. it is something that we all know in our heart. but the issue is, anybody that's been in the public eye, including myself, and i'm sure both of you, in the course of your careers, have received
9:04 pm
some kind of threat, congressman, is that true? >> absolutely. violence in the public square has no place whatsoever. the leadership of the democrat party violated all of the rules about how you handle those threats. that is, you don't blow them up, you don't magnify them, politicize them, that's what they've done. a with representative cantor it is reckless and irresponsible. >> sean: is this about congresswoman, i think the reason they released this -- we can all release them, the republicans,er >> dari: eric cantor could -- could release them. i think is an attempt, to smear the tea party movement. >> of course that's what it is. it is about smearing. i know for myself, i've had vandalism perpetrated against me. i've had personal threats made against me against my family. i purposefully didn't disclose
9:05 pm
them to the public, because that 10s to fan the flames. so, i have spoken with my other members. that has happened to other colleagues. we just don't pub eyes that i think that clearly, -- publicize that i think clear this bill coming out knowing how much the public disagrees with it, they are trying to smear people who disagree with the bill. >> sean: let's talk about the vote you both just took tonight. there was a lot of hope among a lot of people that the byrd rule and reconciliation process might be stopped in the senate. congressman, what happened? >> they jammed the whole thing through at this point as you know through the reconciliation process. closed down the opportunity for the republican in the senate to offer meaningful alternative this is the nail in the coffin for health care in the united states at this point in this year. it results in significant use of power buy government to make medical decisions.
9:06 pm
the it brings an individual mandate dictating to every man, woman and child what kind of health coverage they must have. huge move in a direction that puts the government in charge of the they trust government. we trust people. things hidden in the reconciliation is the takeover by the government of all student loans. why that is in the health bill is beyond me >> sean: i agree congresswoman this is going to cost caterpillar 100 million dollars. verizon came out with a strong statement against this bill. chamber of commerce came out. there's a fox news poll, 79% of americans believe that our economy is on the brink of collapse. we learned today that social security will be in the red today. there's no lock box. i guess the issue comes down to, is john boehner right? is it possible this could be stopped by defunding it if a republican congress is elected?
9:07 pm
>> absolutely. all of our chips are put on bringing us to a constitutional conservative majority in november in the house and senate. then we can slam the brakes on this government takeover the private sector. with president obama's signature on tuesday on health care takeover bill, recognize this is a full federal government take over of 51% of the private economy in the last 18 months alone. that's why the positive news going forward is that we can put the brakes on this. repeal this bill after we elect a constitutional conservative president, we can get back to prosperity. we just need to elect some constitutional conservatives. >> sean: congresswoman i a book out, conservative victory defeating obama's radical agenda launches tuesday. i agree with you. that's the whole premise of the book. castro supports the bill, so i'm sure that's a ringing
9:08 pm
endorsement for barack obama. do you see that any of these constitutional challenges might be success youful, congressman? >> yes. i believe the individual mandate is unconstitutional. i think the different way in which union health plans and nonunion health plans are treated violates the constitution. we are here not because of march 2010, we are here because of november 2008. elections have consequences and i believe the person people have been awakened which is the wonderful, positive thing that has been done in this process. november 2010 will be a point in time where the american people can put checks and balances back in place in washington. >> sean: this is what you get when you get one-party rule. out of control arrogant government and radicalism on a level i don't think the country has seen before. guys, good to see you, thanks for being with us. >> thanks sean. >> sean: coming up, former governor sarah palin also coming under attack from democrats, who say she is personally inciting violence.

9:10 pm
>> sean: the anointed one praised his health care bill in iowa today. the mayor not too keen. here's what he told msnbc today:
9:11 pm
i have serious concerns about our federal debt, i don't think addresses that i don't think addresses the increasing cost of care and something our children and ground children are going to pay for. the smartest thing i've heard from a department i can't tell in a real longtime one thing inn it comes to their numbers -- - mine were too low. - too high. - all over the place. they'd like to discover what they mean... and how to best use them. and now they can. because the accu-chek aviva system now comes with... new, easy-to-use tools to help you discover... what your numbers mean and how the things... you do are connected to your blood sugar patterns. plus you get an educational video... to guide you step by step. with this tool i saw how little changes can make a big difference. you too can quickly see how food, exercise, and even the time of day... affect your numbers, and make healthy choices. you'll also receive a prescription discount card. i discovered what i can eat and how much.
9:12 pm
i discovered i only needed a twenty-minute walk. i discovered how to wake up feeling great. there's so much to discover inthe accu-chek aviva system. why not start your discovery today? all: i did. why not start your discovery today? host: could switching to geico 15% or more on car insurance? host: does charlie daniels play a mean fiddle? ♪ fiddle music charlie:hat's how you do it son. vo: geico. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. . >> sean: tonight your america the liberal media is doing its part to spread the democratic party theory that republicans are somehow to blame for the threats against members of
9:13 pm
congress in the aftermath of the health care vote. as usual the trying to point the finger at former alaska governor sarah palin, saying competents she made about targeting certain members in congress in the 2010 midterms could insight violence. they took offense to this twitter message which reads: common sense conservatives and lovers of america don't retreat, instead reload. senator mccain was asked about the governor's comments earlier on the today show. >> considering the threat, these concerns we've been hearing about regarding violence, do you now recommend that your party useless incendiary language? will you to her -- will you say that to her tomorrow? >> i've seen the rhetoric of targeted districts -- please, those are fine they are used all the time. those words have been used throughout my political career. [ talking over each other ]
9:14 pm
>> there are targeted districts and areas we call battle ground states. so please, that rhetoric and kind of language is part of the political lexicon. it is no place for threats of violence or anything else to say that someone is in a battle ground state is not originated today. >> sean: joining me with more is chairman of the republican national committee michael steele is with us. we hear the term targeted districts all the time. >> all the time. >> sean: what do you think is going on? >> a couple of things. the left is trying to block and tackle on the vote that they just took. knowing that america is still very displeased with them and taking anything they can and turning it around. two points, one john mccain has it right this is language that's been used in the political spear for generations everybody knows what you seen when you say it. number two, you have some folks that are hot tempered and stupid, frankly.
9:15 pm
and that has no place in the political rhetoric or lexicon, if you will. to the extent that people say crazy things as we witnessed this past weekend, the republican party, democrat party, good-minded americans alike renounce that. don't try to mix the apple and the orange here, when you know, particularly when you look at the hot language, if you will that was used during the bush administration and certainly in the last two or three years of the administration there. were all kinds of threatening tones and language used. i think people need to understand it and put it in context. >> sean: when you say reload that is based -- predicated on the belief that you had loaded before, you gave your best political effort that didn't work. we regroup come back again. everyone knows what that means. but they are trying to exploit this and trying to make an issue out of this. do you remember in 1998, the democratic party in missouri ran a radio ad they said if
9:16 pm
you like republicans, black churches would burn. >> that's right. >> sean: remember that? >> in my home state of maryland, prince george's county they handed out fliers that had pictures of the burning churches of the 50s and 60s and of course infered that if you elect a republican that churches would burn. that kind of rhetoric is outside the bounds. look america in the eyes and i say we are on the heels of an important debate about the direction of this country. let's have a civil debate, democrats, republicans, independents and others who have a voice they want to share. share that voice. let's not take this to a place it doesn't need to go this is a free and open country where you can freely express your views. we don't need folks on the left defining and recharacterizing political rhetoric. we certainly don't need others to use this time to do ugly
9:17 pm
things to threaten elected officials and the like. let's be civil and level headed about this debate. >> sean: when george bush was president he was called a murderer, the war is lost, surge has failed, terrorizing women and children in the dark of night. that came from john kerry. >> that was the presidential nominee. >> sean: they killed civilians in cold blood was john murtha's comments. what bothers me the outright hypocrisy. all of a sudden, everything is game during the bush years. now all of a sudden everything is off-limits. everybody wants our politicians safe. they represent we the people starting with the president every elected official down. when james clyburn says republicans are basically aiding and abetting terrorism against democrats, what was your reaction to his statement earlier today? >> with all due respect to congressman clyburn he's flat wrong. he's not aiding and abetting the ending of such discussion
9:18 pm
he's furthering it by inciting, you know discord among citizens by pointing the finger at someone. he doesn't know if the person who is holding a nazi sign or said something you go a democrat, libertarian or republican, he doesn't know what they are. he should be saying there is no place for that kind of rhetoric or behavior in the political discourse and stop it. to start saying republicans, you know is part of their playbook. it is ludicrous, certainly i reject it outout. >> there's a poll that dame out the headline is tea party could doom the gop in november. they for example when you add tea party candidates into the mix with a democrat and republican, the tea party candidate would get 15%, gop 25%, democrat 36%. they say it would be a gop nightmare according to this,
9:19 pm
or a republican dream. what is your reaction to the idea? >> look, the reality of it is, i think the gop, republicans partner with the tea party movement around this country. as i've said with the leadership that i've met with since april of last year, if the tea party candidate is a nominee a democrat, we'll back 'em. conservatives, we'll back 'em. likewise they will support the republican nominee against a democrat. we don't need to allow any more nancy pelosies to wind up in congress. i've call for nancy pelosi to be fired the way we do that is elect good conservatives to the congress. >> sean: i saw you the other night speaking at the nrcc dinner. i think a new conservative republican party is the answer. obviously this is an opportunity for bold differences between two parties. this is going to be a
9:20 pm
fascinating midterm election year. >> it is sean. again i invite people to go to and join me. >> sean: more cop coming up, one -- more coming up, one conservative has made it a habit of confronting members of congress and they haven't reacted well. the unbelievable video is coming up. straight ahead (music plays)

9:24 pm
>> sean: the house just passed the final fixes to the health care reconciliation bill by a margin of 220-20 . that bill will go to the -- 220-207. that bill will now going to the president for his signature. joining us dana perino.
9:25 pm
the process has been corrupt. a lot of people had hopes that the senate could fix this. how do you analyze what happened tonight? >> well i think it is amazing how long republicans held the democrats off. this is not the bill the democrats set out to have. they wanted a public option. they were forced into a corner to back that off. in order to get the bill done they had to bribe even their own members. amazingly, every republican hung together. they've revived the republican party. tonight bill they passed has more medicare cuts. even more tax increases. talk about job killing, if you are an employer if you don't provide good enough coverage, as deemed by the new irs agents you have to pay $2,000, per employee, as a fine to the federal government. >> sean: unbelievable. you know politics as well as anybody i know. let me run some poll numbers by. for example, 62% want
9:26 pm
republicans to continue to challenge the bill which i think is an interesting good thing. in spite of what u.s.a. today and gallup pointed out the vast majority of people overwhelmingly oppose this bill, still 55% rasmussen want to repeal the bill. this one interesting. america hates congress more than wall street. harry reid has an 8% favorability rating. and nancy pelosi has an 11% favorability rating. put those together, how do you analyze that? >> none of those numbers are good and they have to be troubling to them. president obama gave 50 plus speeches between july and when the bill passed. the poll numbers continue to go down, almost every time opened his mouth to talk about. amazingly, i think it was yesterday morning that david axelrod the president's political adviser said they are not worried about it in terms of a p -- pr perspective
9:27 pm
because the bill sells itself. if that were true i don't think they would have spent the past few days complaining about death threats that has happened on both sides of the aisle. believe me having worked in the bush administration the democrats did not -- >> sean: did anyone -- does anyone remember the video of the g-8 summit? remember people on left radical things they said? one of the differences i think here is i think they are trying to marginize the tea party movement because the tee matter movement is effective. >> there is always going to be people on the fringe on both sides. i think is interesting about the numbers you just read that's not the fringe. that's bigger than just the middle. 60% oppose, i don't see how this gets better for them. i believe implementation of this bill is going to be very
9:28 pm
difficult for them already we know the children's preexisting condition piece that president obama touted doesn't go into effect until 2014. tax cuts are going to hit right away some of america's best, oldest and biggest businesses saying they have to lay-off people and cut benefits for their own employees in the wake of this bill. >> >> sean: george bush was called every name in the book on a regular basis. >> and then some. some that hadn't even been made up yet. >> sean: true, all right. the difference i think dana, you may be talking about one person, two people, three people, that are not reflective of a larger moment that includes stay at home moms and housewives and military members and the elderly. talking about in the case of the criticism against president bush, most came from congress. most of it came from senators. where were their voices then? >> remember, the member of the
9:29 pm
congress who called president bush a loser and liar. >> sean: and murderer. >> right and a war criminal. it went on and on. here's the thing emotions ran very high during the iraq war, i understand that emotions ran high when the tarp bill was passed to bailout the banks, i understand that we should get perspective. if they thought their bill was a winner they would be out toing it and not complaining about this. >> sean: they wouldn't have to bribe senators and corrupt the process. >> they wouldn't have to sneak in student loan takeover. >> sean: great point. thank you for being with us. famous actress speaking bout hollywood's dark underside. how do the west coast liberals behave among their own? that and much, much more, straight ahead.

9:46 pm
incremental basis. we are seen as traitors. the tone is getting so poisonous in america on both sides this is regrettably and arguably destructive of our democratic values. >> sean: where were the democrats -- do you think those democrats that voted for this bill, many of them are gone in november? >> joe biden said they are. he said a lot of them didn't deserve to be elected. a lot are gone. the white house gave them an impossible possible choice. either support this and be embraced or oppose it and you are isolated. >> sean: there was a report out today the unions could buy if you voted yes in november and no now, kind of chicago, thug-type politics that we keep hearing about, intimidation politics. instead of saying to members of your own caucus vote your conscience and we'll support. >> one of the things that concerns me about the november elections there's so much deception in the media and
